Walcownia is a museum located a bit out of the way, but it's worth taking a look here because there are many old industrial machines here. In addition, the museum has a large collection of old cars.

Coal mining industry has been in the spotlight recently in Silesia when it comes to industrial heritage attractions, and perhaps rightfully so with coal being the "black gold" of Silesia. But it's high time for other branches of heavy industry monuments to attract visitors too. The zinc rolling mill is very interesting and with all the original equipment that you can touch unlike typical museums. Everything's described in English too. And the staff are really nice and eager to answer all questions. There's also an exhibition of old engines of different kinds (would be nice to have some more information sheets there) and a private collection of vintage motorcycles.
